House of Lies

Anyone watch the first season of House of Lies?

I watched all 12 episodes during the winter break, and I gotta admit, I really enjoyed it and it has an interesting story line. It's a comedy, but there are A TON of dark and heavy content as you go from episodes 4-12. Personally, I don't think the trailer does justice in foreshadowing some of the dark material in this show.

Has a great cast: Don Cheadle ("Hotel Rwanda", "Iron Man 2", etc), Kristen Bell (from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"), Ben Schwartz ("College Humors"), etc.

It's "kind of" like Suits, but about management consultants instead of lawyers.

Season 2 scheduled to come out Jan. 13, 2013.

House Of Lies is based on the book "House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn" and is a new comedy that follows management consultant, Marty (Don Cheadle) who doesn't like to lose and will do anything by using people and manipulating things to go his way. Jeannie Van Der Hooven (Kristen Bell), a co-worker of Marty's, is beside him with a razor-sharp personality to match Marty's. Together they and Marty's corporate team members, Monica (Dawn Oliveri) Jeremiah (Glynn Turman) and Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.) take what they can a run with it. Created by Matthew Carnahan (Dirt) and Martin Kihn,House Of Lies is a half-hour comedy that stretches the boundaries between work and personal relationships in a cut-throat consultant type of way.

just watched all 3 seasons of House of Lies in the past week or so.

1st season was great, 2nd season was meh, but setting up for season 3 which was pretty good.

Can't wait for season 4 to start.

Reminds me a little of House of Cards as well, in terms of main character talking to the camera and manipulating others, but with more frontal nudity
Never argue with a dumbass, they drag you down to their level and try to beat you with experience

One of my favorite shows for sure. Don Cheadle is golden. Love the manipulation, shit talking, consultant talk, etc. So funny watching them convince a company head that they NEED their services.

Started the show randomly with my friend. First season was great. I got a little bored in the beginning of season two though. But because season two got a little boring we both just stopped watching it lol

Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.

I didn't really like it; I could only watch the first 3 or 4 episodes. Felt like they made an Amercian Pie version of Mad Men.
